Hello my name is Andrea and this is our absolutely beautiful baby boy Maddox. He came into the world on November 30th, 2020. Everything seemed perfect with our little 6 pound 8 ounce miracle. Little did we know our world would soon be turned upside down. It wasn’t long after he was born that we got the news that this amazing little boy has trisomy 21 Down Syndrome. While trying to process this information and being uncertain of his future we still fell head over heels in love with this sweet beautiful baby. As it seemed like we were starting to research and process things took a quick turn. We have now discovered he is at huge risk for heart failure at this point. He has an ASD in the upper chamber of his heart, a VSD in the lower chamber of his heart, and something is wrong with the main ventricle in his heart. He is also jaundice and has loss of hearing in one ear to which we don’t quite know the extent of yet. We are still currently in the hospital with him helping him fight for his life. Both dad andI were hit hard during this pandemic and now donot have an income currently coming in. Things are piling up and only getting harder while we try really hard just to focus on helping our baby boy survive and fight through this. I’m not usually one to set my pride aside and ask for help but right now I have decided I need to. Little baby Maddox was born via csection so I’m also trying to recover from major abdominal surgery on top of everything. We have 3 amazing little boys at home currently with grandma hoping to meet their baby brother through more than just FaceTime. Our 3 year old at home currently has hearing loss in both ears and ASD of the heart so we knew wewould be some what prepared for what was to come but we had no idea how much worse it would be for our little Maddox. Anything anyone can do at this hard time is very much appreciated so that we can continue to stay by this amazing little boys side. ❤️
